Flexible and scalable LDPC decoder architecture is developed for the IEEE 802.11n standard. The serial-parallel architecture is employed for achieving high throughput with low chip area, and triple-bank memory blocks are used for parallel factor expansion. Two low-power strategies using voltage over-scaling (VOS) and reduced-precision replica (RPR) are applied to the decoder. By applying these techniques, power saving of up to 35% is demonstrated when implemented in a 90 nm CMOS technology.
